Yes, Willie Nelson's fans did the right thing by buying his belongings from the IRS and then giving them back to him. Willie Nelson is a national treasure that has inspired millions through his music and his pro-marijuana activism. Any acts of charity toward him by his fans should be lauded.
Yes, fans of Willie Nelson who bought back his assets and gave them back to him did a good thing. While it was certainly not necessary, it was a good thing for people who care about the singer to give his things back. That way his taxes were paid and he still had his belongings.
I think it is absolutely acceptable that Willie Nelson's fans bought his IRS-auctioned belongings. From a legal perspective, the IRS was doing their job by getting money to pay off Nelson's debts, and Nelson's fans did not break any law by buying his former belongings and gifting them to the singer.
I think it is really great the fans of Willie Nelson, and so many of them, were so generous and kind with this act. Sure, it could be said he owed the money, and he has made his share, but Willie's fans are free to do as they please. They are showing their love and respect for him while he is still alive. Too many times we lose artists that we, as fans, feel were underappreciated.
